Tom N Rob’s Night On The Red Carpet

28 Nov 2023 | Category: News

“I had a lovely time.” That was the verdict from Tom, one of our residents, as he enjoyed his big night on the red carpet this past weekend.

Tom, along with co-star Rob Hemming, saw their film “Happy, Okay Mate,” nominated for four awards at the Birmingham Film Awards held at the glitzy ICC in the city.

Accompanied by his mum, Helen, and the Trust’s Registered Manager, Brendan Griffith, Tom enjoyed the star treatment at the ceremony. He said, “It was great, I had a lovely time.”

Rob agreed, saying, “It was great to celebrate the fantastic achievement of being nominated for Best Choreography & Best Micro Short with Tom, Brendan, Helen, and Rob. We had a fantastic three-course meal and lots of fun. Well done, Tom! I’m really proud of you!”

Indeed, when we spoke to Tom, he was quick to praise the food, particularly the pudding, adding, “I really liked the little ice cream cones with the brownie.”

Although “Happy, Okay Mate” ultimately didn’t win any awards, Brendan was quick to stress that it was far more important than that: “Tom was a little disappointed not to come away with something,” he stated, “but I said to him, ‘look around here, how many of the other delegates have special needs?’ There weren’t any. That, and the fact that hundreds of films were originally selected in these categories, being nominated is an astonishing achievement.”

Apart from the nomination, Tom N Rob – as the duo call themselves – will be running a workshop in Shropshire next week. For further details, click here:
